article imagePaul Festival — A first-hand photo essay Special

By Emma Burge     Aug 27, 2012 in Politics
On Saturday August 25th, I attended the grassroots Paul Festival in Tampa, Florida with press credentials. The celebration of liberty attracted others from around the country and here are some photos I took.
The gathering is a tribute to Ron Paul, the Republican Congressman and 2012 Republican presidential candidate from Texas. It's been called "three days of music, entertainment and activism."
Speakers included Peter Schiff, CEO & Chief Global Strategist for Euro Pacific Capital; Gary Johnson, Former Governor of New Mexico; Michael Scheuer formerly of the CIA and many more.
Paul Festival happened a week before the Republican National Convention, taking place now in Tampa.
Paul Festival is run by the Liberty Unleashed PAC.
